We were up at 4:45 in preparation for our flight to Johannesburg. 5:30 AM and heat was suffocating. We stood in the outdoor check in line, the sun still not up, dripping in sweat.

We arrived in Johannesburg around 11:30 Seychelles time 1:30 ...

Let's hope my ride is a patient person... Not sure my tired, fragile, smelly state could handle an initial meeting with someone who is cranky because I'm late.

... warm but nice.... Food I must be honest I didn't really have anything authentic! Fast food, Chinese, maccy's, Sunday dinner food at the brunch, curry (if u can call that a curry!) but I guess that is local food cos it's multi cultural...they do a lot of Arab food here too obviously like the tajines and stuff.
